Burton Opens Craig Kelly Proto Facility

Craig Kelly Burton 82 3

This past week I had the privilege to attend the opening of Burton’s new Craig Kelly Proto Facility. On top of that I got to ride with one of the men who started it all, Jake Burton Carpenter. It was easily one of my best days riding Stowe Mountain Resort, the mountain I grew up riding.

Check out out more photos from my trip and the full story on snowboardermag.com and a big thanks to Burton Snowboards for the invite.

Realizing the road from Yosemite to Mammoth was closed. +7 extra hours. Getting to Mammoth and riding crust. A low morale. One flat tire on the way home from Mammoth. -1 spare tire. Having another tire pop an hour later. $200 for a tow truck. $50 for a scary hotel room. $540 to get all my tires replaced. The story and pictures from the most ridiculous roadtrip ever. Priceless.
